'Squatting On Olympus'Squatting On Olympus is an exploration of Google Street View's frozen universe. I explored the streets of London photographing members of the public who had adopted a similar position to myself: observing other members of the public. These 'coffee shop flânerie' believe themselves to be removed from the bawdiness of the street, and with the protection of the window they are seated behind, they stare unashamedly at people passing by. I subsequently challenged this gaze: utilising Google Street View's ominous, silent, presence to photograph these people and in turn question who the observer ultimately is; with the Street View camera, and in turn myself, often becoming the subject.
